Mayor Helt to serve on waste panel

Sykesville Mayor Lloyd R. Helt Jr. will serve on the county Waste to Energy Study Committee.

The Town Council approved the mayor's appointment to the 24-member panel at last week's council session.

"I have been interested in waste to energy co-generation [incineration] since 1980," said the mayor. "I have studied the issue and have an open mind."

The mayor said the county must look at all its options since the present landfills will only last until 2005. He has reviewed incineration operations in Baltimore City and Lancaster County, Pa.

"This program can work here," he said.


* Sykesville: A door was pried open in the 1100 block of Coventry Meadow Drive between 4:45 p.m. Monday and 10:30 a.m. Tuesday. Tools and an extension cord were taken.
